Now last week I said that this week we would introduce our new team member. However due to sudden family illness our new team member has had to pull out. We are extreemly sorry to lose her and her wonderful work, and hope that her family member improves rapidly. We have decided on a new team member who will be starting with us for challenge 13 (although we may renumber it LOL to 14)
When we started This Thursday we decided that we would have some weeks where there were no sponsors and no prizes, because it shouldn’t all be about winning prizes . As we have constantly had sponsors from the beginning we have decided that for the next 2 weeks the challenges are going to be just about taking part for the fun of it. It also gives the design team some real playing time where we can start with a completly blank page.
The challenge this week is Blings the thing so we want to see loads of shine, sparkle, glitter and glimmer with some added pow and pizzazz. Or as usual you can interpret the title however it inspires you
So here are the design team examples for this week
Our guest designer this week is Rebecca Clews , we would like to thank her for her brilliant examples and hope that she enjoyed playing with this weeks theme. A few words from Becky
I started crafting with cross stitch about 8 years ago when a colleague at work introduced me to the craft. I bought a magazine with a cover kit and stitched it all with 6 strands! It looked awful and still makes me laugh thinking about it now! I started making cross stitch cards and gradually my cards were made primarily with paper crafting materials.
My favourite technique is rubber stamping and I am lucky enough to be on the Design Team of two rubber stamping companies – OneFourZero and Dinky Dots Crafts where I make cards to show on my blog, their websites and craft magazines. I also design for two challenge Blogs – My Time to Craft Challenge and The Penny Black Saturday Challenge. And, of course, it’s an honour to be a guest designer on ‘This Thursday’ this week!
